O_BALGZAND - Eurasian oystercatchers (Haematopus ostralegus, Haematopodidae) wintering on Balgzand (the Netherlands) is a bird tracking dataset published by Sovon, the University of Amsterdam and the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO). It contains animal tracking data collected during CHIRP (Cumulative Human Impact on biRd Populations) for the study O_BALGZAND using trackers developed by the University of Amsterdam Bird Tracking System (UvA-BiTS, The study has been operational from 2010 to 2014. In total 22 individuals of Eurasian oystercatchers (Haematopus ostralegus) have been tagged while overwintering in the Balgzand area in the Western Wadden Sea (the Netherlands), mainly to study how they utilize intertidal flats in relation to food availability in winter. more

Data are uploaded from the UvA-BiTS database to Movebank and from there archived on Zenodo (see No new data are expected.

These data were collected by Sovon in collaboration with the University of Amsterdam (UvA). Funding was provided by the project Monitoring abundance, composition, development and spatial variation in macrozoobenthos and birds of the national programme for sea and coastal research (ZKO) of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). Additional funding was provided by NAM and supported by the UvA-BiTS virtual lab on the Dutch national e-infrastructure, built with support of LifeWatch, the Netherlands eScience Center, SURFsara and SURFfoundation. The dataset was published with funding from Stichting NLBIF - Netherlands Biodiversity Information Facility.
